What is the most awkward thing you’ve had to do (in public, if applicable)? Probably get changed in the middle of Times Square. Some dude spilled his soda all over me.

The story behind the human

It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s senior Keith Picolet running through the six with his woes!

“I run cross country, I bowl, and [I run] track,” Picolet said.

If he had a superpower, he would choose to have superspeed like the Flash. Simply put, he likes running. All three of these activities take strength and endurance and a bit of willpower.

“I just want to be in the best shape I can be,” Picolet clarified.

To emphasize that fact, if the world was coming to an end, and there was only one day left to do whatever he wanted, Picolet decided that those last 24 hours would be best spent doing “adventurous stuff”.

“Hiking and riding bikes- dirt bikes”, Picolet said, just a few of the things that could satisfy his love of the outdoors.

Like a tiger hunting in its natural element, Picolet commands the stage, having little tolerance for indolence.

“Why not?” Picolet proclaimed. “[If] you’re sitting around, doing nothing, then why not go and do something?”

It is a lifestyle anyone can adapt to, and a lifestyle Picolet has lived by since he was young when he and his dad would spend time fishing together, something they still often do. His favorite childhood memory?

“Catching my first fish. [I was] four probably.”

You’re never too young to have a little adventure.
